The Yale transgender swimmer who stole the spotlight from Ivy League rival Lia Thomas at Saturday’s meet held off completing his transition from female to male in order to finish his college career on the women’s team.
Iszac Henig, a 20-year-old California native, competed in three events at the meet between Yale, Dartmouth and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, winning all three – including two head-to-head showdowns with Thomas.
Thomas had competed on the UPenn men’s team for three years before transitioning and joining the women’s team this year, sparking controversy after she shattered longstanding records. Warning: Some of the photos are a freak show. More
